Nicollette Sheridan Leaving 'Desperate Housewives'

A day after rumblings of Katherine Heigl and TR Knight leaving 'Grey's Anatomy', comes word straight from ABC that Nicollette Sheridan will be moving on from Wisteria Lane.

The 45-year-old Sheridan has been on 'Desperate Housewives' since it debuted, playing vamp Edie Britt on the comedy-drama about scandalous domestic life.

"She had a great time on the show and is looking forward to her next project," her publicist confirms the news. "Her final episode doesn't air until April." The show's season finale is set to air in May.

In an interview earlier this year, show creator Marc Cherry hinted that Sheridan's character may be coming to an end, saying that her actions "will have devastating consequences for her and lead to a shocking conclusion to her time on Wisteria Lane."

And it does appear to be a creative decision by the team as Cherry evidently wanted another game-changer this season, similar to what the show did with last year's five-year time jump.

As for how the exit will happen, it's rumored that Edie will find out her husband, Dave, plans to kill her and gets into an accident and hits and electrical pole as she hurriedly tries to escape. The script is just being given to actors for table reads.

The rest of the cast, Teri Hatcher, Felicity Huffman, Marcia Cross and Eva Longoria (photosEva Longoria photos) Parker are expected to stay on.
